Description



The wide world of sports took a decidedly glamorous turn in 1964, when Sports Illustrated rolled out its first swimsuit edition. This major first helped popularize the bikini as the "go to" swimwear choice for women and launched a time-honored tradition that is still going strong to this day, with the magazine's fans anxiously awaiting the late-winter arrival of each year's new edition. Get in on the ground floor of this captivating trend with this important key inaugural issue. Dated 1/20/64, this fantastic first is graded 8.0 by leading magazine certification service CGC. The grading label notes "Off-White to White Pages" and the name of the alluring cover model "Babette March".
